Overview

Capture every point of view in 4K with excellent picture quality and efficient IP production workflow
The versatile BRC-X400 PTZ camera is ideal for use in a wide range of environments - from broadcast studios and remote on-air suites to sports stadiums, arenas, houses of worship and lecture halls.

The camera's 1/2.5-type Exmor R CMOS sensor captures broadcast quality 4K images with excellent sensitivity, very low noise and rich, natural colour reproduction. It's complemented by the integrated high-resolution lens that offers a powerful zoom capability of up to 80x in Full HD*** (30x in 4K), with an expansive approx. 70° wide angle coverage to capture every point of view.

Efficient IP-based live production is augmented with support for NDI®|HX* (via optional license), allowing flexible configuration with other networked NDI-enabled devices.

Images also can be reviewing remotely via a web browser, with support for RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) ensuring smooth, stable streaming of video plus audio (from an optional microphone, available separately) over an IP network.

Installation and set-up is easy, with a new Picture Setting File** allowing the same settings to be applied to multiple cameras. Convenient integration in multi-camera live events is also simplified with genlock support and an 'on-air' tally lamp.

** Available through future upgrade planned in early 2020
*** With Clear Image Zoom and Tele Convert Mode

Note: When using RM-IP500 firmware should be updated to V2.10 and for RM-IP10, firmware should be updated to V2.17.
